Westminster Abbey
Bruce 26 V 11

In February, British AFOL Warren Elsmore considered the upcoming royal wedding and had an idea. The ceremony was set to take place in Westminster Abbey, the massive gothic church begun by Henry III in 1245, and the traditional site for British coronations, weddings, and other historic events, and also the perfect subject for a large scale MOC. The job was too big for one builder, though, so he enlisted the aid of Ed and Annie Diment, Stuart Crawshaw, and Naomi Farr. They also contacted LEGO, who provided the bricks and help publicize the project, and this also led the the involvement of Mark Stafford and Megan Rothrock. Even with this impressive collection of builders, they had to work like mad to complete their project in time for the wedding on April 29, which was also the weekend of the AFOLcon gathering and exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. It will be on display at other upcoming LEGO exhibitions and fan events around Europe.

The finished model is over 2.5 meters long, weighs over 60 kg, and contains over 180,000 bricks. 400 minifigs sit in the pews for the blessed event (one side is cut away so you can see the interior), and a separate pull-out section features the happy couple at the altar. This MOC has gotten a considerable amount of press, and photos can be found all over. This video shows a lot of detail. Here's a gallery from AFOLcon with some good pics. Ed has some WIP photos in his gallery.


Medieval Roving Theater
Bruce 21 V 11

When NaNeto, one of our Portuguese forum members, saw Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, he was taken with the idea of the traveling band of actors hired by Hamlet to expose his mother and uncle. So he created their Roving Theater. In addition to CC, NaNeto is active in Comunidade 0937. His newer MOCs can all be found in his Flickr stream and his older creations are on Brickshelf and MOCpages.
